The audio of Neethaane En
Ponvasantham was released on Saturday (September 1) in a
grand manner at Nehru Stadium in Chennai. The event was a pure
bliss for the music lovers, as some of all time hit tracks composed
by Ilaiyaraaja were played at the function.
The guest list included: K Balachander, Balu Mahendra,
Bharathiraja, P Vasu, Suresh Krishna, Yuvan Shankar Raja, Surya,
Karthi, Jayam Ravi, Karthik Raja, Premji, Venkat Prabhu,
Samuthirakani, R Sunderajan, Ravi K Chandran, Jeeva, Samantha and
Director Gautham Menon himself hosted the show
along with singer Karthik. The event took off with a documentary on
Ilaiyaraaja being played to audience to showcase his achievements.
It was followed by some ear-pleasing instrumental renditions by the
London and Hungary-based musicians.
Gautham Menon welcomed Ilaiyaraaja on stage and requested him to
croon popular tracks like Kodai Kala, Athadi, Oru Poongavanam,
Thenpandi Seemaile, Thenpandi Seemaile, Raja Kaiyya Vecha, etc.
During the process, the audience went crazy and tried to cheer the
mood by blowing whistle for which the music director requested not
to do it but just to enjoy the songs.
However, the audio launch event of Neethaane En
Ponvasantham, the movie that stars Jeeva and Samantha, will be
aired on Jaya TV.
